C & G’s Community GiveBack makes a comeback

METRO DETROIT — Last year, three local nonprofit organizations received thousands of dollars in cash donations and advertising as part of C & G Newspapers’ inaugural Community GiveBack contest, and now C & G is teaming up with Suburban Hyundai in Troy once again to offer the program for a second year. 

Beginning May 18, local 501(c)(3) nonprofit groups are invited to register for the Community GiveBack by filling out an application online or through the C & G Newspapers Facebook page. Registration ends May 31, and then readers will have four weeks — June 3-July 1 — to vote for their favorite nonprofit.

The organization that garners the most votes will receive a $2,000 donation from the contest’s major sponsor, Suburban Hyundai, plus four full-page ads in any of C & G Newspapers’ 19 publications. 

The 2015 Community GiveBack was a huge success, with more than 80 local nonprofit organizations submitting applications and approximately 32,000 votes cast. Last year’s first-place winner was the Professional Law Enforcement Association Foundation, a nonprofit organization that donates equipment and training to law enforcement professionals, including K-9 officers. Detroit Bully Corps won second place, and Day Dreams Farm Equine Rescue and Rehabilitation won third place. 

Winners of last year’s contest are not eligible to enter this year. Click for more information, complete contest rules or to register.
